Growing Philanthropy in the Global Community

Interest in international philanthropy is growing domestically and in countries around the world. What will it take for philanthropy to flourish globally? Can examining philanthropy across nations create understanding and momentum for philanthropy in individual countries and cultures? What role do universities play in growing philanthropy globally? Within the United States, individuals are increasingly involved in charitable activities that reach beyond national borders.  How will this transform philanthropy nationally and internationally?
